I'm looking for a Triangle-area source for a couple 6" wide steel studs (actually the track that the studs would sit in).

Like this track: http://www.phillipsmfg.com/products/mcif/drywall.htm#Tracks

Not a stock item at the big boxes and while I can probably special-order, that seems to take months.

I need to make a large water tray for bending wooden bands.

Thanks,
-Mark

Best source I know of is Triangle Material 919-469-2222. If they ask for a company name tell them it is for Inner-Tech --- Phil Soper They are in Cary Hope this helps

Metal studs and accessories are also carried by companies such as Stock Supply co., Colonial Materials, C-K Supply Co., and Builder 1 Source if they are available in your area. Check the Yellow Pages - before they become extinct.

+1 on Triangle Materials. They are located off James Jackson Avenue between Maynard Road and Cary Parkway. Sometimes I need just one piece of 5/8" wall board, and a couple of studs, and they treat me like one of their best customers. Ihave a steam box you are welcome to use. I used it on some curved benches three years ago and it's been stored ever since. Unfortunately, "gas can" steam generator rusted out, so you would need a large pot and a piece of plywood to make a lid.

Mark -

Could you use 6" aluminum gutter? Cut it to the right length and pop-rivet end-caps with silicone sealant.

Interior Distributors on Alston Ave in Durham carry steel studs and tracks, they have 20ga and structural up to 16ga on the yard. I bought all c-shapes and tracks for my house from them.

Phil, Dennis, Pete, Jeff, Bernhard - thanks for the tip(s). I'll make some calls on Monday.

Mike - re: steam-box. A steam box would be more versatile, but I think I need to KISS. A trough plus a hot plate and I'm in business.

Bruce - I appreciate the offer, but I'll be adding this to my long-term inventory of tools. I don't exactly work fast, ha ha.

George - aluminum gutter is a fall-back choice. I'm looking for steel for the durability, plus the C profile of the studs means I won't need to heat as much water as I would with the guttering.

Dirk - I need a min. of 6.5' of galvanized track. Let me know by PM if you have something to sell/trade/whatever.


Cheers,
-Mark

Addendum - I bought a couple sticks of 1.25" x 8" x 10' galvanized metal track from Triangle Materials. Nice folks, easy to deal with for a walk-in sale.
